The Extron FOXBOX Rx DVI Plus Fiber Optic Receiver enables long haul transmission of DVI, audio, and RS-232 control signals over a single fiber. Engineered for reliability and exceptional high resolution image performance, it uses Extron all-digital technology to deliver perfect pixel-for-pixel transmission of DVI computer-video images up to WUXGA 1920x1200 resolution, including HDTV 1080p/60. Designed specifically for AV systems, the receiver includes many integrator-friendly features such as Auto Input Memory, RS-232 control, internal test patterns, and real-time system monitoring. The compact, low profile enclosure of the FOXBOX Rx DVI Plus allows for discreet installation behind a display, and multiple receivers can be daisy-chained.

The FOXBOX Rx DVI Plus is part of the extensive FOX Series of fiber optic products from Extron and is compatible with the complete line of FOX Series HDMI, DVI Plus, DVI, VGA, and VGA/YUV transmitters. The FOXBOX Rx DVI Plus can be used for simple point-to-point applications or in combination with FOX Series distribution amplifiers, switchers, and matrix switchers to handle the most challenging AV system designs, from a simple conference room to an enterprise-wide fiber optic distribution system.

The receiver is ideal for a wide range of applications requiring long distance transmission of high resolution content with the highest quality. Because transmission of content is inherently secure and immune to outside interference, fiber applications are favored in government, military, and medical environments. It features industry standard LC-type connectivity, and several FOXBOX DVI Plus receivers may be daisy-chained to support applications with displays in multiple locations.

The FOXBOX Rx DVI Plus is available in two versions, multimode and singlemode. The FOXBOX Rx DVI Plus MM supports multimode fiber at 850 nm, which is typically used within buildings or facilities with moderate-range transmission distances. The FOXBOX Rx DVI Plus SM supports singlemode as well as multimode fiber at 1310 nm. Singlemode fiber offers long-range transmission capability over extreme distances of up to 30 km (18.75 miles). It is used in very large facilities such as airports and stadiums, as well as connecting over very long distances between facilities such as university campuses.

The FOXBOX Rx DVI Plus receiver and its corresponding transmitter can be controlled and configured using the RS-232 port on the transmitter. With a second fiber link installed, functions for both units can be controlled at either location. Since the units are typically situated far apart, this capability adds considerable versatility, enabling adjustment and calibration of audio at the receiver. It also allows for verification of fiber link status between the units as well as the presence of DVI-D and audio input signals at the transmitter.

Analog RGB/HD Component-to-DVI Conversion

The FOXBOX Rx DVI Plus is ideal for AV systems that include a variety of digital and analog displays and sources. Pairing the receiver with a FOX Series VGA or VGA/YUV transmitter provides easy conversion of analog RGB/HD component to DVI-D.
